Let’s face it, everyone wants to be young, every one wants to look good. It’s human nature. It’s just the way things are. But instead of just slathering your skin with anti aging lotions and potions, you should remember that beauty begins from within.
Now, I’m not saying that you should ditch your whole beauty routine, but more like you should add to it. Phytoceramides, A great stay young supplement that is natural, safe, and super effective for better, younger looking skin. Ever heard of it?
Well, in a nut shell….
Ceramides are naturally occurring lipids in our bodies that make up about 40% of our skin and pretty much keep your skin supple, hydrated, and plump.
Phytoceramides are the plant derived equivalent of ceramides.
Remember, as you get older, the amount of natural ceramides in your body gets lower. It’s a good thing that you can now substitute the loss with supplements. So now it’s not really a question of what to do about it, but which one is better.
Phytoceramides: Wheat VS Rice
You see, when it comes to phytoceramides, a clinical trial was conducted in Japan by the Institute of General Medical Sciences to see which one would turn up to be the best for your skin. And we could explain to you further what the findings were, but you can just have a look for yourself:
The trial consisted of 33 people, 27 women and 6 men all in their mid twenties. For six weeks, the participants were given 40 mg of rice derived ceramides a day. Dermatological and three dimensional microscopic skin surface analaysis was performed in order to evaluate the effects on the skin. Below are their findings:
So obviously, rice derived phytocermides come out as moisturizing king. So, if you do decide to take these kinds of supplements, be sure to check the label for ones that are derived from rice.
